Little Joe Campground

Area Status: Open

Little Joe Campground is accessed via the Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway, with awesome views of the surrounding mountain peaks, valleys, and forests. This is a small, quiet campground with 5 camping units, a picnic day-use area, ADA accessible vault toilet, and water but does not have garbage services so pack it in, pack it out. Wise River runs nearby, and provides easy access for fishing but there is not a boat ramp at this site.
